Madonna - Don’t cry for me Argentina
Tekst: Tim Rice / Muziek: Andrew Lloyd Webber
(1996)






It won’t be easy, you’ll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I’ve done
You won’t believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she’s dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you



I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn’t stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it too



Don’t cry for me Argentina
The truth is, I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don’t keep your distance



And as for fortune and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They’re not the solutions they promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me



Don’t cry for me Argentina



Don’t cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don’t keep your distance



Have I said too much
There’s nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do, is look at me to know
That every word is true
